Moni YL Law, founder and CEO of ICanCode claims the notion of STEM education should be included in the compulsory courses in primary and secondary schools.

Law, worked for different information technology companies for more than 10 years and committed to promote STEM education, providing innovation learning ideas to new generation in recent years. She said that STEM education is kind of activity-based education which is two-way education and different from the tradition cramming ones. Since there was a research about STEM education can stimulate students' personal interests, she thought it will be a good chance to cultivate more scientific and technological talents in future.

Law expressed Hong Kong should incorporate computer programming into compulsory subjects in primary and secondary schools. “STEM education is very popular in some countries, such as Japan, Europe and United States, which include computer programming in compulsory courses as they discover that children under this education are more creative and independent,” thus, the Hong Kong government should put more resources into STEM.

Regarding the implement of STEM education, Law claimed it is not easy to carry out in Hong Kong currently because not many teachers have full understanding about innovation technology, like coding. “But I believe computer coding will become the third language in future,” said Law. Thus, she thought understanding some coding is essential for everyone.

“I can code. You can code. Everyone can code,” said Law. She pointed out nowadays some children between the ages of 5 and 15 who come to join coding course and they can write simple coding, some even can make Apps and computer games afterwards. She added, “coding is not a boring activity because it is used colorful blocks and characters to attract children.” Therefore, more and more parents are willing to let their children to learn new technology. --165076 2019年2月19日 (二) 02:53 (CST)
